READ Teaching as Leadership

To be leaders in their classrooms and schools Demystifies what it means to be an effective teacher describes key elements of practice and provides a clear vision of success Addresses the challenges every teacher in every classroom faces on a daily basis An accompanying website includes a wealth of tools videos sample lessons discussion boards and case studies Reading this was like reading a book on entrepreneurship or improve your business book It was great to see the similarities between good teaching and a well managed business This similarity makes it somewhat sad how little teaching is valued in America from a compensation perspective The book has numerous examples and case studies to support the various viewpoints and tips it brings up I would definitely recommend it to any teacher regardless of the grade they teach I m at a University and even though there were never examples from that setting in the book I still found it extremely usefulI don t know if it was me or the book though but it was felt extremely dense to read like walking through a swamp that I was knee thigh deep in Which is odd because of the other similar readings I ve done I would have thought this book would have passed by faster One theory is the numerous number of examples which ask the mind to reorient itself just a little bit for each story rather than go through the entire book as a single piece It is not to say that the book is disjointed the chapters build well upon each other and information is very clear It was just dense and took some time to process while reading This isn t a weekend book
